Here’s a link to a persuasive refutation of the Brasky study  linking fish oil to prostate cancer:

lef.org 

The LEF refutation is comprehensive and includes 59 references. As the LEF article points out:
1) The prostate cancer/higher omega level group had almost 6 times as many men with baseline PSA levels above 3.0 than the lower omega level group.
2) The prostate cancer/higher omega level group had about twice as many first degree relatives with a history of prostate cancer than the lower omega level group.
Neither of these differences were adequately controlled for by Brasky.
